Nimbrethil - Druid - Kul Tiras

Post by Nimbrethil » Wed Apr 13, 2011 8:25 am

Hello Element!
My name is Vagelis Maniatis and I am a Classical Singer from Greece. Here follows my application to your guild.

Name of your character: Nimbrethil
Class: Druid
TalentSpec: Restoration 8/2/31 http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/k ... nt/primary
Race: Night Elf
Your Professions (and level):
Alchemy 525 (Elixir Master)
Leatherworking
525
Realm: Kul Tiras
Your Age: 43 and counting
Country (timezone): Greece (CET+1)
Previous guild(s): with a time order going back:
Wowrush Rushers
Devils Rejects
Energy
Epic
Dark Clan of Death
Knights of Ni

Why you left them or want to leave them: I am leaving the Rushers because the raiding mechanism has caved in. We were trying to maintain two 10man groups, but in the 60% of the cases only one group went to raid, which meant that 7-10 people were benched. So the officers and GM burned out, and after some time decided to make a core 10man group, that did not include me.

Why do you want to join Element: The best solution for me is to join a guild that is raiding 25man. The momentum of Element seems to be right, so I would like to be part of that, and help Element make a stable progressing 25man raid group.

From where do you know Element: I started playing in Kul Tiras on January 2006. That I think answers the question :-)

Times you can NOT play: I cannot play at 02:00-18:00
For how long you already play WoW: Since January 2006
For how long you play the character you apply with: At the middle of the Burning Crusade, I started playing with Nimbrethil, my resto druid
Raiding Experience:

BoT: 4/4 N
BD: 5/6 N
TFW: 1/2 N

ICC: 12/12 N 6/12 HC
ToC: 5/5 N 2/5 HC
Ulduar: Everything but Yogg or Algalon

Thats my druids experience. With my warrior I have raided MC, BWL, ZG, AQ 20, Kara, SSC, TK

Armory Link: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/k ... l/advanced

Optional things you want to tell us: for example alternativ gear, alts, ...

I have a lot of alts that I play with, to level professions, and find out the mechanics of. Warrior, Death Knight, Shaman, Priest are 85 level and i am doing heroics with them. At some point I would like to take part to an alt raid with some of them :-)

You can tell us here about your talentspec especially if your class supports several "useful" specs. EG when you apply as a druid, you should make sure if you want to be a healer or tank or dps or moonkin and if you are up for another spec as well.

I have been gathering feral gear for my druid, with cat spec in mind, but the gear has not the same quality as my resto gear. Also, my resto gear could be altered to make a moonkin set (via gems enchants reforge) but it would not be optimal obviously. Anyway, I think I am proficient in healing, and thats what I enjoy most. I am open to suggestions though :-)

Sup,
I would change Your spec a lil.
You really need Effloressence for raiding and get rid of perseverance.
For 25 men raiding You can as well get rid of Natures Cure.

Other then that You might wonna rethink Your reforging.
You are way below haste cap, so do some research of what haste cap should You aim for.
Mastery is good, but not so good for 25 men.

Thats just few cents from me :p
Sincerely
Loo

Hello Looria,

Thanks for your look into my case. I am always interested in other resto druids opinions.

Well, you see, up to now in Cataclysm I have healed only in 10 man raids. Moreover, I was usually coupled with a resto shaman and holy paly. So I was assigned to heal a tank or THE tank, and help with raid healing when needed. Thus my focus on mastery, and the absence of effloressence from my spec. Eflloressence was always under 2% of my total healing. When i find myself raid healing full time in a 25man, I will reforge back to haste and my spec will change, though I will always lament for the 3 points I will be forced to put on Living Seed :-) I cannot wait for the 4.1 changes.

As to the amount of haste I got, I know that I have more than the 916 breakpoint (5th rejuv tick), assuming raid haste buff of 5%. The next meaningful break point would be 2005 (9th wg and efflo tick) that I think would be unattainable with my current gear. Should I take a warlocks DI for granted? Which haste cap do you mean?

Thanks for your cents. I can't wait for more :-)

Hey there,

For 10 men goin for master is fine. I for myself cant imagine not having Efflo even for 10 men..but some ppl do, some dont. But since You are applyin to 25 men raiding guild, Your gear and talents might require some changes when You join to be more effective.
Your gear is fine and You will be completely able to reach 2005 haste for 9th wg tick with it
I had simillar gear to Yours and got haste to about 2270 haste unbuffed.
So having like 1735 haste rating or so unbuffed (+5% from raid buff will get You to 2005) should be well doable if you twink enchants and reforges around.

You will find that for 25 men is still haste the most important until you reach 2005 buffed. When You do, then crit is the most important..mastery not so much.

Got some nice ranks in 10 men too, so I guess world wide 18th rank on Nefarian, 12th rank on Alakir and 11th rank on Cho'gall can tell You that I do know what Im talking about :p

Regards,
Loo

Hello again,

I never disputed that you know what you are talking about Looria. Of course, if I am allowed to raid heal for a 25man, I will reforge back to haste, respec to effloressence, and change my healing style, since the needs will be different than what I was used to.

Thanks for the advise,

Nimb

Hahaha Looria, it sounded like you did :-)

BTW I have done the reforging we talked about, and without gimping myself i can reach only 1900 haste rating unbuffed. So, unless I get both the raid 5% spellhaste AND a lovely warlocks DI, I cannot get the 9th WG tick. This is very clear at the following site:

http://restodruid.info/stats-2/stat-priorities/#haste

So, my question is: Do the resto druids get the DI in Element raids?

Eagerly waiting for an invite ;)
